You're Only as Strong...

Hello, and Happy Thursday!
As it's Thursday, it's my day to post on the Great Impressions Stamps Blog.
Today, I am sharing a couple of stamps from the December Stamps of the Month.
The first thing that I do each morning, is stumble to the coffee pot, so this stamp really called out to me!
The 'coffee' was embellished with a bit of Glossy Accents, making it look a bit more realistic.

Great Impressions Stamps: E-777 Only as Strong, F537 Steaming Cups

Many of our friends have been through some pretty tough ordeals, and I hope
this sentiment brings them a smile or two!  I stamped the sentiment twice, 
putting one line on the front, and the rest on the inside.
Inside Sentiment

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
You still have several days to  join in on the January Sketch Challenge!
Hope to see your card linked up there - you could win a spot as the next Guest Designer!

Hugs,
Patti J.

Love it and was hoping we could have a cup today but...maybe tomorrow or one day next week. The coffee looks delicious, hot and steamy and ready to sip.

Amen, sista! This is so very cute! I have had to use Glossy Accents more, since I can't use Stickles for OWH. It always gives that added touch.
